Banya Men!

Though they aren't common in the United States, Jjimjilbangs, Banyas, Onsens, and Hamams are a great places to hang out.  This is a group for men comfortable in their own skin and appreciate the eastern ideas of public bath houses.

Balneology for banyas?

Started by Salt Dragon. Last reply by Stephen Larsen Jun 30. 6 Replies

I read an interesting article on the health benefits of mineral and hot baths.  The focus is Japan and balneology or balnetherapy, which means the “treatment of disease by bathing”.  Whereas it…Continue

Since this forum is about discussing the benefits, history, and culture of hot air bathing, wouldn't it be apropos to tell the other members of the group about any outstanding (and preferably manly)…Continue

OK to be sociable while at spa?

Guys I'm curious about your input.  After being at a spa for a while - Korean Jumjibang (spelling?) I find that it can get a little boring.  Sometimes I strike up conversation with another guy. …Continue

Planning to be at Spa World in Centerville, VA Monday.  Let me know if any of you guys will be in the area.

I used to go to Dillon's years ago when I lived closer. It was a great place, very nude friendly. I suspect the place hasn't changed much since I last went.

Their website

shows pictures that seem to me look like the place has been updated and modernized quite a bit since I was last there. That suggests to me that things are going well for them and the business is successful.

Have a great time there. Wish I could join you.

Has anyone been to Dillon's Russian Steam Bath in the Boston area.  I'm visiting this week and might have a chance to go this Thursday night.  I can't find much about it though.

Introductions are in order!

Greetings!I am Chris and I am 25. I live in Greece and I suppose I am here because I would like to have some meaningful conversations, the kind I, for some reason, get in real life, in day-to-day life.I am studying to become a programmer, I am almost done and starting to think about my actual future in the workforce, while at the same time a lot of my opinions have changed lately. I feel like I'm going through a second puberty... A good thing I suppose, I am becoming a better me! And I would…See More
